Simeon Caleb

Sorry we haven't posted a blog in a while. Here are some pictures of what's been going on around here lately.

Hey little brother, come play!

I just can't wait to meet you!
Daddy will snuggle with you...
I will read to you...
Aunties and uncles and cousins will give you lots of lovin...
I will even let you use my pink stroller...
and my crib...
come on little bro!

If only he knew how much we wanted to meet him, hold him, and how many kisses he would get I am sure he'd bust on out here. Let's face it. If I was in a cozy warm hot tub I'd probably want to stay too. (Josh keeps reminding me that it is not Simeon who chooses to make the exit).
If you haven't guessed we are still waiting in anticipation for our little Simeon. And to have these questions realized.
Will he look like Josh or Stacy or Hallel? Will he have a head full of hair? or red hair? How will we as parents feel the second time meeting our child in person face to face? How will Hallel respond to her very own living baby brother? Will he be a chunk (yeah, we are pretty sure about that:))?
We are still praying for a healthy, safe, and uneventful delivery SOON!

UPDATE: This morning at my doctor's appointment my doctor set up an appointment to be induced TOMORROW!! We're so thankful and excited. Please be praying for us all.

baby love

Well, we are on the countdown! Baby Simeon is officially due on Friday in 2 days! Hard to believe after 9 months of him growing big enough to be ready to enter this world. We know that he may not come till later but it is definitely feeling Real and Exciting! We went to the hospital today to visit brand new baby Ella who was born Tuesday morning in the wee hours. It is such a beautiful reminder of how a brand new baby is a complete miracle of God!
Please keep praying for our dear little Simeon Caleb as he prepares to enter this new home!

Some sweet reminders from my dad about the process of waiting.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-2a "For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born..." "He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man's heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end."
In the mean time our little entertainer continues to shine at her job.
